PERTH – Australian textile innovator Nanollose has signed a collaborative agreement with Grasim Industries Ltd., of the Aditya Birla Group, to work on exclusively developing and scaling the former’s ‘Tree-Free’ Nullarbor fibre production.

Nanollose ferments liquid organic waste from the food and beverage industries, such as coconuts, to produce microbial cellulose that, once prepared, can be spun to create rayon fibre.

With the fundamentals of its proprietary technology in place, the firm has sought a global partner to help reach its goal of yielding 2-5 tonnes of material per month by Q2 of this year. Fibre producer Grasim, of the US$48.3 billion Aditya Birla Group, will assist in further refining Nanollose’s solution to enable production on its pilot spinning line by the tonne.
